Margaret Olley is arguably Australia's most loved living artist. She's also one of the country's most generous benefactors to public art galleries. This intimate biography is a rich and comprehensive look at eighty-odd years of Margaret Olley - from the 1920s in the green, tropical wet of Tully, North Queensland to bohemian adventures in Europe- her lovers and friendships with well-known figures such as Donald Friend, William Dobel and Russell Drysdale, successes and failures, and, of course, her life-long love affair with painting.

This is a rich and comprehensive look at eighty-odd years of Margaret Olley - at her lovers and friends, and, of course, her painting. It is glorious proof that indeed her life has been far from still.
